Can I count from 0 to 15,000,000,000 in about 5 seconds?

Hello.

Is there a way in either FCS2 or Motion to create a number on the screen which ascends from 0 to 15 million very quickly? You know how Comic Relief would brag about how much money they'd raised with the sound of a cash register going ping or something at the end.

There must be a way to make this happen without making the frames by hand. Is there a plugin where you can just input the lowest number and the highest number and it'll just cook it for you?

Any help much appreciated x

Can't remember the top limit on this, but there is a 15 day free trial so you can give it a go

Thanks Peter it looks great except it requires Leopard. Do you know of anything else?

Hi stephen thatnks for replying.

I may be being really dumb, but that thread appears to recommend a way of doing it in After Effects, which I don't have. Is there anything for FCS or Motion?

James, you are not dumb at all. This is a feature that comes with AE and not Motion. I would not be surprised if it's in the new version of Motion. But what do I know. In order to stay in Motion it looks like Peters plug-in is the best bet.

How I'd approach it depends on the visual composition: where does the 15 go in relation to all of those significant digits? If the 15 is stationary, all you need to do is fake the numbers as a barely recognizable blur while the first two digits ratchet up. That's fairly easy to do with just hard coding 16 individual text objects but if you can tolerate the stylization, use the LiveFonts Odometer or Flipcount.
